DO I NEED TO APPLY?
Under Copyright law no performance of a protected play may be given either in its entirety or in the form of excerpts, whether or not any admission charge is made, without the prior written consent of the owner of the copyright (or his/her accredited agent). Such consent must be obtained before rehearsals start.
On occasion, it may be necessary for the copyright owner to withdraw rights in a particular play. For that reason it is in your own interest to check the status of the rights before booking a performance venue.
Please note that you must make sure you have acquired a licence before starting rehearsals or issuing publicity.
PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE RIGHTS
For Professional Performance rights please email Luke Holbrook, firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include full details of your proposed production including as much information as possible regarding the creative team; number of performances and dates; and details of the proposed venue (including the seating capacity and ticket prices)
AMATEUR PERFORMANCE RIGHTS
Amateur performance rights are deemed to apply to all performances in which persons taking part in the performances are not recognised professional actors and actresses.
